Dear Wikimedia community, Here are the latest news from Wikimedia France.
First of all, we are devastated by the passing of our estimate trustee Mrs. Louise Merzeau on July 15th. Louise had been appointed by the Board in February with the ambition to learn and profit from her deep knowledge of and academic research on the commons. Sadly, the current problems of Wikimedia France did not give her the opportunity to get seriously involved with the movement before she passed away. This sad news reached us a few days after the resignation of Mr. Guillaume Goursat, treasurer, from the Board. The Board has appointed a new treasurer, Mr. Florian Pépellin, who already had a mandate from the Board for banking and financial matters. The executive team (chair, vice-chair and secretary) remains otherwise unchanged. The Board has also acknowledged the demand for a general assembly expressed by more than 25% of our members. This assembly will take place on September 9th and will be the opportunity for members to elect six new Board members to fill the vacant seats, and discuss current issues. The regular General Assembly where the certified and audited accounts are presented and voted will be held in October as usual. Six Board seats will also be renewed then. Wikimédia France will receive a site visit from the Wikimedia Foundation on the 25th and 26th of July. Best regards, Édouard, on behalf of the board of Wikimédia France _______________________________________________ Wikimedia-l mailing list, guidelines at: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Mailing_lists/Guidelines and https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia-l New messages to: Wikimediafirstname.lastname@example.org Unsubscribe: https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimedia-l, <mailto:wikimedia-l-requ...@lists.wikimedia.org?subject=unsubscribe>
